(I dont know exactly how to remove it but.. you would most likely have to start by taking the inner door panel off)

Finally getting round to doing this. Ordered this stuff from Amazon

So you reckon just keep the caps on and use masking tape all around the area to keep paint going elsewhere?

I haven't used spray paint since I was about 10 years old and that was on my Raleigh bike haha. That turned out quite ugly.

Is there a general rule to using spray cans? Do you stand a certain distance etc to get a good coverage and in order to not apply too much and cause ugly looking drips etc?
